This article is not about political neuroscience. There is a lot of knowledge to be gained about things as important as how and why we choose leaders, what makes a leader different from a follower, decision making etc and this knowledge can be gained by examining the human brain. The tests Iacoboni conducted are of course meaningless and unscientific, but don't discredit the area of research. There hasn't been a solid amount of data collected to make any claims, but we have enough knowledge in areas like psychology, sociology, political science and even the emerging area of social neuroscience to make and test certain hypotheses. — Unsigned, by: Xbyiu / talk / contribs
